Subject: RE: BS: Get out of debt now!
Ah, but jimmy...people around here are still playing the game. As long as they do, my paper money remains useful, despite the fact that it really has no intrinsic worth. Since I can still get 100 cents on the dollar here, your deal is not presently attractive to me.

The coins, by the way, are not worth all that much either, but they are worth something...if you know how to work the metal in useful ways.

If the paper money collapses at some point, I will consider your deal, however.

As for gold...it's fairly useful for certain things, and very attractive, but you can't eat it.
